According to a report from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, many executives around the NBA believe Coby White is a possible trade piece. With the former first-round pick moving to a bench role in 2021-22, there is belief he is expendable.

There is certainly some sense in the report. White is now a bench player on the new-look Chicago Bulls, and if he can be moved to help address other areas on the roster, then why not explore it? However, White can still be incredibly valuable as a shooter off the bench to pair with Alex Caruso. Perhaps White and Caruso become the fearsome twosome as the first two off the bench in Chicago once White returns from injury?

Over the course of his young career, the former Tar Heel is averaging 14.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, and 3.8 APG. Clearly White has predominantly been a scorer, which makes his role off the bench so appealing. The third-year guard showed incredible offensive potential last season that a role off the bench will potentially be beneficial. As witnessed last season, when White is asked to be a scorer rather than a facilitator, he tends to thrive on the court.
